"Too many requests"

Yesterday Duolingo pulled a new one on me. After changing pages a few times, instead of showing me the requested page a totally blank white page appeared with a small message in the upper left-hand corner that said, "Too many requests." This is the only page I could see after that, no matter how I tried to access the page (back button, new tab, etc).

I tried to do my daily Russian lesson on my phone, but that too stopped working right towards the end of the lesson. I'm not even sure if I kept my streak!

This morning I haven't tried seeing if anyone else had the same problem, for fear that it would happen again and I wouldn't be able to post.

What's going on?

I've gotten it about a week ago, it seems to appear due to either a. userscripts or b. just a server error, I changed my password and it seemed to stop, but if that doesn't work, it will go away after some time since it doesn't specify a time (429 error) My phone logged me out when I got that, so don't worry about that.

Thank you, I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who experienced this problem. I did recently install a userscript which I need for my classes. Take care.
